Low carb fries, Turnip fries!

Does your low carb diet have your craving French fries? Turnip fries make a surprisingly tasty alternative, and they’re easy to make. Each medium sized turnip has about 8g of carbs. So that makes a fist full of these fries pretty low carb!

Simply buy some turnips, season them up and toss them in the oven! I haven’t been able to get them to have the same texture as French fries, but the flavor is pretty close. Check out the video below for full instructions!
